Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2005
[Bottle, 33cl, Fresh, exp: 09-05-08, 14c] Rich and hazy brown sugar color. Good white head that diminish to a thin film, leaving some laces. Aroma is dominated by the brown sugar but traces of pale malt + fruits. Taste is very sweet, nice but simple. I should leave my other bottles age more.

Dark Red Coloring with Sandy Head. Dark Bread Taste, Bread Dough, Dry Fruits, Heavy Mouthfeel....Some Alcohol Warming Works its Way up and Ends with a Dry Bitter Finish. Solidly a Great Tasting Belgian.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Very fruity yeasty aroma. Weird, not unpleasant smells that remind me of cleaning products. Hazy brown with a loose head. Tart and fruity flavor with some earthy fig and cherry. Finishes moderately dry. Spritzy mouth feel.

Boutip (5266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2005
Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a huge off-white foamy head. Aroma of sweet raisins with the distinctive Belgian yeast. Taste can also be distinguished by the sweet malt and raisins with a candy like sweetness also present. Body is a bit too thin but carbonation is quite good. Another fine beer from a great brewery.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 Every beer has its day. And Pater 6’s day was the day after Thanksgiving 2005. It was a glorious day. The sky wasblue the air was crisp. The ocean was very clear but a bit cold. We decided against the turkey leftovers and ate Pad Thai off my foot insead. Oh yeah, I forgot the beer was reddish brown in color.

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Pours medium brown with a nice flluffy light tan head. Pleasant fruity aroma - grapes, apples, pleasantly sweet aroma. Taste is fairly sweet caramel, some dark fruits, with barely a touch of bitterness. Palate is fairly light. Not detecting any alcohol in the palate, but a very slight warmth in the belly. From Grapevine in Austin.
